May 6, 2007 The Quest for Relevance On this edition of the White Horse Inn, the hosts talk with Os Guinness, author of Prophetic Untimeliness: A Challenge to the Idol of Relevance, and Fit Bodies Fat Minds: Why Evangelicals Don't Think and What to Do About It. __________
Launched in 1990, The White Horse Inn (named after the pub in Cambridge, England, where the Reformation came to the English-speaking world), is a nationally syndicated radio broadcast featuring regular round-table discussions on faith, culture and apologetics. Hosted by Michael Horton, Ken Jones, Kim Riddlebarger, and Rod Rosenbladt, the White Horse Inn aims each week to equip Christians to "know what they believe and why they believe it."
Though the hosts have different denominational and ethnic backgrounds, the White Horse Inn unites itself on the principle slogans of the Protestant Reformation, such as the sufficiency of Scripture, salvation by grace alone through faith alone by Christ alone, and the importance of a God-centered, rather than human-centered outlook. By renewed attention to these classic and central themes on a weekly basis, it is the aim of the White Horse Inn to bring health and vigor to a church that appears to have in some ways lost its sense of missions.
The broadcast regularly features interviews with leading thinkers, "on the street interviews" that help show popular convictions among either Christians on non-Christian groups, creative music segments and frequent interaction with quotes from movies or music lyrics as a way to analyze modern American culture. The White Horse Inn is available on nearly 50 stations throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as worldwide via the internet. On the web, the program is accessible throughout the week.
